Giving back to a disabled military veteran, wounded in combat.

Bradley  Fasnacht  was serving our country in Afghanistan, when an improvised explosive device struck the vehicle he was in, resulting in his leg having to amputated. 

In an effort to get the United States Army Staff Sergeant around easier, an organization that supports military families donated an all terrain wheelchair, that according to Bradley should do the job;

"Some of the Freedom Alliance would probably let you know, prior to the amputation I could barely walk across the field as it was without stumbling around. As it is right now, I'm getting used to the leg and it definitely can be difficult at times. Something like this chair is going to make it amazing."

With Sunday's donation the Freedom Alliance has now gifted 28 chairs.

Making things even better, the $12,000 chair is customized whereas it can even hold Fasnacht's fishing rods for when he decides to cast a line.
